Cromwell School was founded in 1939 to serve the town of Chatteris. It grew over the years as it accepted senior pupils from nearby schools that were either closing or turning into primary schools. It turned fully comprehensive in 1969 in line with the Cambridgeshire LEA's switch from the tripartite system to a comprehensive system.
The school site is in the process of extensive redevelopment, with an all-weather pitch and changing rooms opened at the school in September 2011. In August 2012, a suite of rooms for Technology and ICT, a new sports hall, as well as a fitness suite and dance studio were opened, and all of these facilities are available for use by the local community outside school hours.
The old school buildings are going to be reconstructed into a new dining hall and sixth form facility. Two new science laboratories will also be constructed. All new building works are expected to be complete for September 2013.
